Today our community will celebrate and farewell @kellykoochew, it will no doubt be a terribly sad event mixed with a huge celebration of her life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ We will forever miss seeing this beautiful woman at our market each month, whether it be for a shop and a chat or to help out with our social media (in true Kelly style multitasking with phone in one hand and lovingly holding one of her girl’s hands with the other). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Kelly was always so proud when her family and friends came to visit on market day, as she could showcase all that this wonderful community has to offer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ We know that our market is an event that many in our community come to each month, meet with friends, share a coffee and catch up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ So, the WFM committee, with the blessing of Kel’s family and friends are starting a new tradition. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Each October, starting tomorrow, we will dedicate our market to Kelly’s memory. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ We want to provide an opportunity for Kelly’s family and friends, together with the community, to take some time to get together and remember Kel, to re-share those wonderful stories we are constantly hearing and, through time, to smile at her memory. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ We hope this will be a treasured event for Kelly’s friends and family for years to come, especially for her husband Nick and 3 beautiful girls. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ At tomorrow’s market we’ll honouring Kel’s incredible gift of organ donation and asking others to join the registry, you’ll also see other reminders of this gorgeous community minded lady across the market and throughout the day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ So, bring your family to the market with you tomorrow, wear something pink and join us in celebrating the wonderful woman who contributed so much to our community and our lives, Kelly Koochew
